This manual suggests that anyone can learn to dance without the aid of a teacher and, after providing a short discussion on organizing balls, appropriate dress, and etiquette, the book focuses on the popular ballroom dances of the era--quadrilles, polka, schottisch, polka mazurka, and varsoviana. This "do it yourself mentality was common during the late nineteenth century and this particular dance manual was reissued in 1876 under the title Offenbach's dancing without a master.
